">insider Zach Berman, the team's lead rusher was not spotted at today's workout ahead of this weekend's matchup against the New York Giants.

While the Eagles didn't hold a practice on Wednesday, Sanders appeared on the injury report with a quad issue he suffered during Tuesday night's win over the Washington Football Team. The third-year running back had a career day, rushing for 131 yards on 18 carries in the 27-17 victory.

If Sanders is unable to take the field this weekend, it will be his fourth missed game of the season. Earlier this year, he missed a three-game stretch with an ankle injury.

Just as they did during his previous absence, backups Jordan Howard, Boston Scott and Kenneth Gainwell will step up if Sanders can't play on Sunday.
